Weighing only 12 grams ! “Logger device with sensor” will be released

Nov. 16, 2015

FDK CORPORATION (Tokyo Stock Exchange 2nd Section: Code: 6955) has decided to launch “Logger device with sensor”, which finalized 50% lighter than its prototype model released in May, 2015, and its “Development Kit” from January, 2016.

Logger device with sensor

“Logger device with sensor” is a sensor device with built-in acceleration, geomagnetic, temperature, humidity, pressure, and illumination sensors.

Since it is possible to collect information of movement, stop, direction and surrounding environment by various sensors, it is able to use a variety of applications such as to watch the care recipient, to manage working environment of the construction site, to manage the history of the collected information, and the like.

The final product is a result of extensive improvement in pursuing a high-density design, and other improved features. Compared to the prototype model, up to 22% of downsizing (length: 15%, width: 21%, thickness: 22%) and about 50% of the weight reduction were achieved without changing the operating time and function.

We have decided the simultaneous release of “Development Kit” of the “Logger device with sensor” to respond to many requests from potential users. After the announcement on the release of the development of “Logger device with sensor” this May, we have received many requests from potential users that they would like to adjust the settings easily to suits their systems.

This product development is a part of our efforts to the advent of IoT (Internet of Things) era that create new values and services by the connection of everything to the Internet. We will work on the development of variety of sensors and batteries to sensors as the key components in the IoT era.

The products be exhibited at the FDK booth during the “Embedded Technology 2015” to be held at Pacifico Yokohama on November 18-20, 2015.
